Columbus Drug Paraphernalia Defense Attorney
There is a long list of items that are considered "drug paraphernalia" in Ohio law, and if you are found to be in possession of any of these items, including pipes, hypodermic syringes, bongs, marijuana cultivation equipment, methamphetamine manufacturing equipment or chemicals, testing equipment or a long list of other items, you will be arrested and charged with possession of drug paraphernalia. For those who are found to be selling these items, the penalties if convicted are even more severe. Most drug paraphernalia charges are misdemeanor charges, however they have the added element of a suspension of your driver's license, and cancellation of certain professional licenses. You may also face up to 30 days in jail for a minor case of possession of drug paraphernalia, as well as fines. These penalties are so extreme that it is necessary to contact a Columbus drug paraphernalia defense lawyer at once if you have been arrested for this charge.
